Getting an Eyelid Lift to Look More Awake and Alert
Most people struggle with drooping skin above their eyelids, which makes them look twice their age. It creates a constantly tired appearance even when they’re alert and attentive. Along with sagging skin, people develop eyelid puffiness, undereye bags, and fine lines on their eyelids. Excess sagging skin on the upper eyelids can even interfere with your line of sight.
You can easily fix these problems with an eyelid lift surgery. This low-risk quick-recovery procedure gives you a more alert and awake look and restores some of the youthfulness that your face once had.
Why Do Your Eyelids Droop?
As you age, so does your skin. Your skin is not as elastic as it once used to be. This causes excess skin to collect on your lower and upper eyelids and then droop. The excess skin on your eyelids can lead to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The muscle tissues decline in strength and sag, losing their ability to support surrounding tissues. The pockets of fat that once gave the face shape also deteriorate and sag.
Good Candidates for the Eyelid Lift
If your goals are realistic and you’re in good health overall, then you can consider having the eyelid lift procedure. It makes you look more alert and attentive and restores the youthfulness to your eyes. The results can boost your self-confidence and self-esteem.
Discuss your expectations and goals with Dr. Bundrick and he will determine whether you’re a good candidate or not. As the skin is always aging, the results from the surgery will only last five to seven years or until your skin’s elasticity declines again. This is why it’s important that you have realistic expectations going in.
How Is the Eyelid Lift Procedure Performed?
The eyelid lift surgery lasts for about two hours. First, anesthesia is administered to help you be more comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Bundrick will make incisions in your eyelids. For rejuvenation of the upper eyelids, an incision will be made along the natural line at the top of your upper eyelid. For rejuvenation of the lower lids, an incision will be made either at the lash line or on the inside of the lid.
Dr. Bundrick will then remove the excess sagging skin and muscle tissues and will tighten the remaining tissues. Bulging fat will be repositioned or removed as needed. Incisions will be closed with small stitches and dressed appropriately to protect from infection.
Benefits of the Procedure
There are numerous benefits to having eyelid lift surgery. It restores your skin’s tightness, taking care of any skin that is blocking your line of sight. It ensures that you have fewer fine lines. It can also smooth out puffy lids and take care of undereye bags.
